The Chicago Cubs were one of the hottest teams in the MLB, until they meet the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates have stopped the red-hot Cubs folks.
Chicago is putting up a solid effort, however only scoring three runs in two games won’t do the trick.
Especially when Pittsburgh put up 16 total runs in those two games. Chicago needs their pitching to settle down in this game to keep the series alive before it gets out of hand.
Jon Lester will be on the mound as he’s getting comfortable in Chicago. Lester got the win in his last start but only lasted five innings with 92 innings. Most work on his accuracy a bit.
The Pirates got swept by Chicago weeks ago, but is finally giving it to them. The Pirates were on a five game losing streak until they stroke gold.
Pittsburgh is riding a four game winning streak as the bats have come alive. In those three games, the Pirates have totaled 19 runs and only allowed four runs.
It’s the perfect way to win games, but will they be able to keep the streak alive Thursday?
On the mound will be Jameson Taillon. Taillon returned to form in his last start, by striking out six over six innings.
